Ginger Explosion

I thought this was some weird event for a mass assembly of redheads. That creeped me out…too much pale skin, freckles, and the smell of SFP 70 for me to handle all at once.

Fortunately for 99% of the world (no I’m not getting political) redheads will not host “Occupy Somerville” on January 28th.

Instead, head to PA’s Lounge for Ginger [Root] Explosion #4 to sample some of Boston’s food trucks and Ginger Cocktails!

Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, Staff Meal, Dosa N Curry, and Mei Mei will all be in attendance.

What: ArtsUnion Ginger Explosion 4 at PA’s Lounge
When: Monday 1/28, 6:30-8:30PM
Where: 345 Somerville Ave, Somerville, MA
Cost: $13

This event will raise money for ArtsUnion, a cultural council designed to engage the public with Somerville’s artistic culture.  ArtsUnion “produces events, markets, and cultural tours that show the cultural and artistic diversity of Union Square”.

Side note/ Thank God: No redheads will be exploded at this event.


Somerville Police Help Ease A Bad Situation

Around 4am on Sunday morning, my roommate woke me up. “Katie, someone is breaking into your car,” she said. I jumped out of bed and ran to the window over our driveway where I saw the light in my car was on. I grabbed my phone and dialed 911 informing the operator that someone was breaking into my car. The police operator was cool and calm, quickly getting all the information from me. She kept me on the phone as I stared into my car.

From the angle I was at, I couldn’t actually see anyone, but I saw the light on in my car. I knew that as long as the light was on in my car, someone was going through my car. I wanted the light to stay on so that the police could arrive and catch whoever was going through my stuff, stealing my belongings and rummaging through my items.

Local Laughs at the Boston Comedy Festival Brighten Any Day

They say laughter is the best medicine and I’m inclined to agree.

I had a slight case of the Mondays this week when I got my first-ever bike flat, but my day infinitely improved when I got a magical email telling me I had won four free tickets to the Boston Comedy Festival that night at Davis Square Theatre (not to be confused with Somerville Theatre as I learned last night.)

Who doesn’t love comedy? Or free things? AND it was in my neighborhood, so clearly, It was a no brainer for me to go.
